  1. If that’s true, then social distancing and handwashing may not be effective. I’m not sure your premise is correct.
  2. I’m hoping they choose to stay open. The state is allowing golf. Our muni is staying open, but other local munis and private courses have closed. https://governor.mo.gov/stay-home-missouri-order-guidance-and-frequently-asked-questions "STAY HOME MISSOURI" ORDER - GUIDANCE AND FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS To further combat the spread of COVID-19 in Missouri, Governor Parson directed Dr. Randall Williams, Director of Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, to issue a Stay at Home Order which is effective April 6, 2020. This Order directs all Missourians to avoid leaving their residences unless necessary and to practice social distancing when they need to travel outside their homes to work, access foods, prescriptions, health care, and other necessities, or to engage in an outdoor activity. This Order does not require all businesses statewide to close or cease operation. HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF THINGS YOU CAN DO UNDER THIS ORDER: Go to grocery, convenience, or warehouse stores Go to the pharmacy to pick up medications and other healthcare necessities Go to medical appointments (check with your doctor or provider first) Go to a restaurant for take-out, delivery, or drive-thru Go to a place of worship – just make sure that no more than 10 people are in any single space at one time and keep 6 feet of distance between you and others Take a walk, ride your bike, hike, fish, hunt, golf and be in nature for exercise – just keep six feet of distance between you and others Receive deliveries from any business which delivers

  4. Our town implemented a stay at home order yesterday morning, and the governor did one statewide later in the day. (It’s kind of what I see people doing here anyway, but I suppose there are some who didn’t. Not sure how much it will help St Louis or Kansas City at this point.) The updated info for our muni: Course is open. Clubhouse is closed to the public. Credit card and online payments only. Golf carts are available and sanitized after each use. One person per cart. All leagues and tournaments have been cancelled at this time. Not mentioned there, but the bunker rakes and ball washers have been removed. Each flagstick has a sign saying don’t touch, and the holes have styrofoam swim noodle inserts. If it hadn’t been 34* with a thunderstorm, I would have played yesterday afternoon.
  5. My carry out order at a local chain restaurant was prepared promptly and correctly.
  6. Hole 9. (8 of 18) This is one that I thought might be one of the last ones I’d make, since I have a difficult time even making par here. I missed the green, but had a beautiful pitch that rolled right in. With the styrofoam cuffs, I’ve had some putts that were kind of iffy as to whether they would have holed or not. Fortunately, when I walked up onto the green (elevated green from where I pitched it), it wasn’t a question:
  7. Finally, something not related to COVID-19. Bizarre rules gaffe results in mass disqualification in mini-tour event It's not every day you see 14 players disqualified in one event, but that's exactly what happened in an Outlaw Tour tournament on Monday.
  8. Nah. Just getting used to the software, so zooming with family. I’m assuming that we’re allowed to turn the company/app name into a verb, like we did “to google something.”
  9. They could use Zoom for video. Get to pick your own backdrop. I used a scene from James Bond Skyfall yesterday.
  10. Noticed the fairways yesterday just starting to green up, from the straw/wheat color we have during winter. Hope the powers that be let us stay open. So far only 6 positive cases in our 2 county area. I know that means more are out there but positive test results aren’t back yet, or the people haven’t been tested. We’re lagging behind in time compared with the rest of the country, even behind the next town over. But it looks like people here are taking it seriously. The streets are deserted. Getting into my hospital takes more screening than getting into [redacted] when I was in the Air Force.
  11. I’m not sure what the “pending” means, unless it just means that no specific directive has been issued by the state. It lists Missouri as pending, and we’re playing. At least at my muni.
